Having married in 2017, the couple had been together for 16 years.
In a now deleted announcement shared on the Game of Thrones actor’s Instagram page, the couple wrote: “We share our family news that we are parting ways in marriage. We share this not because we think it’s newsworthy but so that as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty.”

Alongside the image, Laura wrote: “This isn’t something I ever thought I’d be saying but, after 13 years of being together Alex and I have separated.
“Our children are and always will be our number one priority and we would respect privacy for our family at this time. Laura.”

The Strictly pro was engaged to Slovenian footballer Matija, with whom she shares five year old daughter Mila.
